Geddy Lee Unveils North American “My Effin’ Life” Book Tour

Geddy Lee "My Effin' Life" Book Tour

After announcing a UK book tour, fans didn’t have to wait long for Geddy Lee to unveil his North American appearances. The “My Effin’ Life In Conversation” tour is coming to the U.S. and Canada in November and December.

Each evening will feature Lee discussing his book and his life with a special guest interviewer. He’ll also take part in a fan Q&A.

“Writing this book has meant spending so much time living in the past,” the Rush bassist says of his endeavor. “I’ve never lived my life looking anywhere but forward, which is why I resisted doing this kind of thing for so long. Being in a band all those years was reassuring because it was an ongoing thing. It felt like it was forever. There was always unfinished business: the next record, the next set design, the next tour. It’s been the theme of my life. But you need a lot more determination to proceed in the world of music without the comfort of your bandmates, and I can only hope that finishing this book will release me to return to what I do and love best”.

The North American leg kicks off November 13th in New York City at the Beacon Theatre. He’ll head down the East Coast as far as Baltimore, Maryland, before heading back up and into Canada. He’ll fly across to hit the West in late November before settling back into the Midwest. The final date is scheduled for December 7th at Toronto’s Massey Hall.

Tickets for the tour include a copy of his upcoming memoir, My Effin’ Life, which is due November 14th.
